“I am not particularly worried about how long it takes; I do not want to get it wrong.”
Tithus sports a skinny, well-groomed, full beard. He always stands tall.
He lives in Denner, a small farming town a few days south of Silkdenn. He chose this place because it’s somewhere he can work on his research without being distracted from the big city life of Silkdenn, while still being quite close to it just in case he needs to access the capital’s resources.
He is slow and controlled in his work, but impatient with others’ demands. He gives off an aura of confidence that backs up his vast intellect.
His attention to detail makes Tithus very proud and assured of himself.
Tithus devoted his entire youth to learning countless obscurities and magical practices, and now he uses all of his skills to expand the reach of academia.
Professor Tithus possesses a rare type of intellect, one that allows him almost perfect recall. He fell in love with learning at a young age and proceeded to pursue every academic avenue open to him. Quickly memorising all of the mundane academic books presented to him, he turned his eye and sponge-like brain to more complex magical pursuits, excelling at those as well and becoming a much-loved professor. While his memory is impressive, it is his careful and cautious approach that has brought him the most success. Few of his experiments have ever gone wrong, as he takes the time to verify his formulae and double check his work. This annoys some, but none can argue with the results. Professor Tithus is not very adaptable and often scoffs at untested and new advances, preferring the tried and true methods.
